The review: Wow. This place was solid. Another one of Hogsalt's/Sodikoff's fabulous restaurants (also has Maude's, Au Cheval, Gilt Bar, Doughnut Vault... all the best), this spot is just as good as the rest. He has really nailed atmosphere and it's just the way I like it -- dark, dim lit, intimate and cool. Shout out to Griff for recommending this place to us -- after months and months of trying to schedule a time to go, we were finally able to make it happen! We slightly over ordered, but the point of TiT is to TRY things. It was all extremely delicious that I'm not sure I could choose a favorite (maybe the terrine??). You truly can't go wrong with any of these items! Will definitely have to bring family back here, as we would like to try everything on the menu!! Another great Try it Tuesday!
